Rumors have swirled since Zayn Malik’s exit from One Direction. Why did he leave? Would he return? Is he suffering from depression?
Malik says he left the band because he wanted to be a normal 22-year-old, but the latest news tells a different story.
Well, it seems as if Zayn is working on a solo career. Just days after leaving One Direction, it seems he has been spending a lot of time in the studio. The producers further fueled the fire, when Naughty Boy leaked a clip of Zayn’s supposed single, “I Won’t Mind.” The Soundcloud clip was later deleted, but not before the caption was spread across the Internet. “There is nothing but love for what was left behind. That’s why we don’t mind. 😉 #zaughty #zinabad.”
Zayn’s former bandmate, Louis Tomlinson tweeted Naughty Boy and reprimanded them for upsetting the band’s fans.

One Direction fans aren’t taking the news of a possible solo career. It seems they feel a bit misled and tricked.
I'm not mad Zayn went solo, I'm mad he lied & tried to make us feel like it was our fault he was unhappy. Then fails to care or defend us.

Zayn chose Naughty boy over us and Louis chose us over Zayn.

I would have been able to whole heartedly support zayn, if he would have been up front and truthful about the whole thing.
